Daily Words of God | "God Is the Source of Man's Life" | Excerpt 587
In the vast world, countless changes have occurred, over and over. None are able to lead and guide this mankind except for He who rules over all things in the universe. There is no mighty one to labor or make preparations for this mankind, much less a person who is able to lead this mankind toward the destination of light and the liberation from earthly injustices. God laments the future of mankind, and grieves the fall of mankind. He feels sorrow for mankind’s slow march toward decline and the path of no return. Mankind has broken the heart of God and renounced Him to seek the evil one. None have ever given thought to the direction in which a mankind such as this will move. It is precisely for this reason that none sense the anger of God. None seek a way to please God or try to become closer to God. Moreover, none seek to comprehend the sorrow and pain of God. Even after hearing the voice of God, man continues on his path away from God, evading the grace and care of God, and shunning the truth of God, and he would rather sell himself to Satan, the enemy of God. And who has given any thought as to how God will act toward an unrepentant man who has dismissed Him? None know that the repeated reminders and exhortations of God are because He holds in His hands an unprecedented disaster that He has prepared, one that will be unbearable for the flesh and soul of man. This disaster is not merely a punishment of the flesh but of the soul as well. You must know this: When the plan of God is made void and when His reminders and exhortations beget no response, what anger will He unleash? This will be like nothing that has heretofore been experienced or heard by any creation. And so I say, this disaster is unprecedented and will never be repeated. This is because only one creation and one salvation are within the plan of God. This is the first time and also the last. Therefore, none can comprehend the kind intention and fervent anticipation of God for mankind’s salvation.
God Laments the Future of Mankind
In this vast world which has changed countless times ever since before history, there is no one to lead and guide man, no one but He who rules over all. No mighty lord labors and prepares for the sake of this mankind’s needs. None can lead them into bright future, nor free them from injustice of this world. God laments the future of humankind. How He grieves at the fall of them! See His sorrow as they fail to learn that they march the road of no return. Man has rebelled, broken the heart of God; Satan’s evil path they’ve gladly trod. And no one has stopped to clearly see where mankind will eventually go.
Who then stops and senses God’s anger? Who seeks to please and get close to Him? Where’s the one who glimpses God’s sorrow or tries to grasp the pain He feels? Even when they’ve heard His calling voice, they press down on the path that leads away from God’s mercy, truth, and watchful gaze; willingly, they sell themselves to Satan. God laments the future of humankind. How He grieves at the fall of them! See His sorrow as they fail to learn that they march the road of no return. Man has rebelled, broken the heart of God; Satan’s evil path they’ve gladly trod. And no one has stopped to clearly see where mankind will eventually go.
How then will God act towards the one who stands defiant and dismisses Him? Know that God’s calls and urgings are followed by disaster grim and hard to bear. It punishes not just man’s flesh but his soul. None can tell what wrath God will unleash when His plan’s made void and His voice ignored, wrath that man has never felt or heard. This is a calamity unique; God’s planned one creation and salvation. This is the first time, and the last. No one can feel with his heart God’s anguished love and fervent desire to save mankind. God laments the future of humankind. How He grieves at the fall of them! See His sorrow as they fail to learn that they march the road of no return. Man has rebelled, broken the heart of God; Satan’s evil path they’ve gladly trod. And no one has stopped to clearly see where mankind will eventually go, where mankind will eventually go.
